Abstract

Background

The nasal pyramid is frequently affected by nonmelanoma skin cancer. In full thickness defects of the nose, reconstruction of all the layers results in better outcomes.

Methods

We present a case in which the combination of two flaps adequately reconstructs a full thickness defect of the nasal ala.

Results

The images provide proof of the excellent functional and aesthetic results.

Conclusions

Our technique is a simple, one-stage procedure, with no distant donor site morbidity that achieves good coverage of the internal nasal lining with good external aesthetic result.
